Onboard my first flight with Air China ahead of a long journey between London & Singapore, this was the first leg of the trip. Heathrow to Beijing. The flight was slightly delayed due to the inbound flight arriving late from Beijing. Luckily the load wasn’t too busy and they managed to make up a little time on the turn around. We pushed back at around 20:55, about 30mins behind scheduled then the long taxi from the beautiful Terminal 2, all the way down to RWY09R. Fantastic GE90 engine start up sounds, so turn up the volume for that during the pushback. Departure from Heathrow was then followed by a left turn towards the North East, flying directly over Wembley Stadium then towards Stansted and Norfolk. Climbed initially up to 31,000ft. A strange set up on Air China, something I’ve never seen before, but the seatbelt signs remained on for the entire flight. However people were not being told to sit down if they were standing. Which was slightly confusing, during turbulence the captain would just turn them off and back on again. Also mobile phones, even in flight mode can’t be used at all. So listening to music or taking a picture on your mobile isn’t allowed. Very strange if you ask me. We stayed at 31,000ft for the first half of the flight. It barely got dark for the duration of the flight due to the Northern routing in the summer months the sun doesn’t really set. So as you can see, over Russia at 2am and it was by no means “dark” there was still colour in the sky. Increased to 33,000ft later in the flight, into Mongolian airspace and over the Gobi desert before beginning descent into a very wet Beijing Capital Airport.

Overall, Air China weren’t too bad. Quite generous legroom and fairly good entertainment system and for the price, simply cannot complain. London to Singapore return (via Beijing) for £310!
Stay tuned for plenty more videos of this trip. After this flight we had a short 1 hour layover before joining another Air China flight, this time an A330-300, for another 6 hour flight down to Singapore.
Also during my return trip, I managed to get some filming done at Beijing airport! Some great spotting footage from Capital airport.
**As always by Full Flight, I do not mean literally a 10 hour + video of absolutely nothing. By full flight I mean that this video includes every section of the flight, from Boarding through to disembarking. If you’re seeking a 10 hour video of the wing, unfortunately you’ll have to look elsewhere.
Thanks for watching
